BRTC Hosts Walnut Ridge Middle School Students for College/Career Day

Black River Technical College (BRTC) recently hosted Walnut Ridge eighth-grade students on its Pocahontas campus for a college/career day.

Sixty-five Walnut Ridge Middle School 8th graders visited BRTC on April 24th for a College/Career Day. Information about earning college credit/credentials in high school via concurrent credit and the BRTC Career & Technical Center was presented to the eighth graders.

Students went on a campus tour, visited The Bridge – a new space on campus that houses multiple simulators (CDL, welders, virtual headsets), experienced the esports arena, ate lunch at the BRTC Grill, and enjoyed the beautiful weather outside with some cornhole and whiffle ball.
